Father's Day Gift

Hope your having a wonderful day on this last Monday of June. This is the Father's day card I made for my husband for Father's day.  We received the BEST gift for Father's day.  The reason I say WE is because my son Robert and his wife Rena announced they are expecting a baby.  YEAH!!!!!  We are so excited.  This will be our first grandchild. I should say our first grandchild without fur, feathers and four legs. We have grand dogs and grand chickens......LOL 
The stamp is from SU.

I decided to make a few for the OWH soldiers.

Instead of Happy Father's Day cards I made
them into Missing you cards. 

So to all those grandparents out there you already know how special grandchildren are.  We can't wait!! Have a wonderful day!

Stand up Cards

Good Morning!  I saw the cutest "Stand Up" card on Pinterst and thought I would give it a try.  You can check out the instructions at Deb Valder's web site  I went kind of crazy and made about six of them. I am sharing three with you today.

The arrows and trees are die cuts

The card folds and fits into an envelope for mailing.

A gift card, money etc. can be inserted inside the card
as a gift before mailing. 
This is a great way to send a gift card or money. Are you wondering where you write your well wishes? You can leave some of the squares blank to write on. (like the bottom one)   Hope you have a super great day!

Good Morning to you! Here are a couple more birthday cards for the OWH organization. 
I made all the embellishments flat so the card would
mail easily.

I used die cuts and punches.

This is the second card using some of the
same embellishments.

Both cards together.
I am getting closer to my June 30th goal of having 100 cards to mail to OWH. Enjoy your day!

Happy Birthday Sunflowers

Happy Tuesday to you. I love the colors in today's card.  The yellow sunflowers really stand out with the blue paper. 
I distressed the edges with ink and the distressing tool.

The sunflower stamp is from "Stampers Best". I used 
Prismacolor markers to color in the sunflowers. 

The paper is from the single sheets at Hobby Lobby.
May your day be filled with yellow sunflowers and beautiful butterflies.

Mini Album Book by Felice

Get your cup of coffee or iced tea because today I have lots of pictures to show you. Felice is a friend of the family and she asked me if I would help her make a mini album for her daughter Gabriella, who is graduating from high school. I told I had never made one but would love to have her come over and give it a try.  She came over once a week for a couple of months to work on the book.  It came out so wonderful!! So sit back and enjoy.
This is the Cover

Side of the book.

The whole book was made by scratch. The cover started
out as pieces of card board. She followed the instructions on
"My Sisters Scrapper" blog to make the cover and the
insert pages.  Debbie's album books also gave her inspiration
along with some CTMH books she had.
Felice used a paper packet she bought at Hobby Lobby
to cover all her pages. Her themes were school days,

travel and family.

Each page has pull out tabs to add pictures to them.

Felice made a waterfall insert to add all her daughters
school pictures starting with kindergarten.  It's so cool!!

This metal clip is so cute!!

I can't wait to see the album after all the pictures are inserted.

Don't you just love the paper she used?

On the last page she made a pocket to add the CD
with all the pictures she used.  Great idea!!!
Believe me when I say I didn't do a thing on this book.  It was all Felice's making.  She inspired me to make my own book which I made along with her.  I will post my book at a later date.  Felice is a wonderful lady.  So happy and full of life.  I had such a good time with her and I am going to miss our Tuesday nights together!!  Have super great day everyone!!!

Butterflies and more Butterflies for OWH

Happy Thursday everyone! Using the Memory Box die cut and many butterflies later I made these cards for the OWH troops. 
I used CTMH  "Love U" and "Thank You" stamps
for all these cards.  

They are very colorful.  They look like paint chips
don't you think? 

Have a super great day!
